As of 4/21, 421 Atlanta is now taking nominations for the next author we publish. Whose book should we publish next? Tell us! Anyone can be a secret book scout, and you can nominate anyone whose writing you believe in, whether you know them or not (as long as it’s secret). Maybe you’ve read an incredible essay by someone online but they don’t have a collection yet. Maybe your friend has only published poetry but has a great novella manuscript just waiting for the right press.


If we publish an author you recommend, you will receive a finder’s fee in the form of some 421 Atlanta books (including 5 copies of the book you nominated) and swag. We will celebrate your excellent scouting skills in every way we can!

On your honor, please do not ask someone else to nominate you.

Nominations will be open for a month.
